i found out why ive been soooo soooo o o o sick. my blood glucose level was at 45 (non-fasting) and my doc asked me how i get out of bed in the morning. i told him i dont. i am hoping this is a reactive hypoglycemia situation and that i dont feel like this much longer. any fellow sufferers?

the symptoms are so similar to regular preggo symptoms that i had no clue...major fatigue, nausea, headaches, night sweats, etc.


(as a side note, i think i need new midwives. they knew for 3 weeks what my level was and didn't call to let me know so that i could adjust my diet accordingly. i found out when i requested they fax my labwork to my primary doc for reference. kind of sad bc they are the only homebirth midwives with hospital privileges- had the last babe at home but i wanted to do the hospital this time. this is the second mess-up too as they also neglected to order my thyroid panel, something that is pretty important in the first trimester for ppl with thyroid issues...feeling torn)
none on the boards, but feedback on LJ here:
